Has anyone found a practical way to do this, preferably without running any
involved Gecko application?

When all bookmarks depended exclusively on bookmarks.html, it was easy to
share by simply copying that file from whichever profile was used to maintain
it to any other profile that wished to use it. It didn't matter if the
profile was for Firefox or SeaMonkey or some other Gecko.

Places merged history and bookmarks. As a result, if you delete places.sqlite
from a profile and copy the bookmarks.html file to that profile in order for
it to be automatically converted to places format, all history is lost for
that profile. If instead you copy from a master places.sqlite profile to
another that desires to use its bookmarks, the original history is replaced
with that of the profile copied from. Either way, the discrete history of the
profile copied to is lost.

Is there any convenient and practical way to share bookmarks without
destroying history?

FWIW, my bookmarks.html file is more than 500k.
